Making the best means doing a lot of little things right. To ensure top quality finished goods, we start with top quality components. That means using native hides for the best grain and yields, premium grade oils, dyes and retanning agents. Our formulas cut no corners, and we are one of only a handful of tanneries in the United States that still processes hides from their raw, cured state to finished leather.

At Horween we specialize in top quality, aniline and semi-aniline finished leathers ideally suited to footwear, sporting goods, and accessories.  Our formulas are proprietary and developed and produced wholly at our facility located in Chicago, Illinois.

We’re proud to produce the finest football, basketball, and ball glove leathers.  We extend to this line the tradition of excellence and quality that all of our products are founded upon.  We have had the opportunity to work with top sporting goods manufacturers to develop these leathers.  Our philosophy that the best leather is part of the best product translates very well into a market where skilled athletes view their equipment as precision tools.  We’ve been diligent and thorough in producing these special leathers where no detail has been overlooked.
